What makes us different

Our degrees have been developed alongside our retail partners to ensure our graduates have the most relevant and up-to-date skills the industry is looking for. As a Fashion Retail Academy student, you’ll have access to unrivalled industry enrichment, including talks and workshops, up to 3 months of work placements with our brand partners, a personal industry mentor and the chance to work on projects set by major brands.

I loved every minute of my time at the Fashion Retail Academy. Over the years, I have had some amazing opportunities and gained experience from well-known fashion brands. This has allowed me to go straight into the industry as a BAA alongside my course. It’s my dream job and I have the FRA to thank!
